It is not easy to find if you are not with local people. The place is nicely decorated, service is super good (as in most of the places in Cuba) and food is delicious. Detail, if you order sea food it is served with funny extra decoration, a glass with a live golden fish that looks at its dead cousin... More

We had a fabulous waiter, Neil, who spoke English perfectly and was absolutely wonderful! He recommended each course for us and everything was outstanding. We started with a chickpea dish that surprised us with the flavors and the three breads. All delicious and unusual. Then we share the paella for 3 for the 4 of us. It was plenty and... More

... which means the service and the feeling is usually very important too. I can eat a good food everywhere, but can I enjoy a really nice atmosphere? For this place, the answer is NO. If somebody thinks that their place is the best and no other restaurant can get even close, I think for a long run it doesnt... More

Hands down the best meal of our week long trip. Every single thing we ordered was amazing. Paella and ropa vieja were standouts. Big portions! Not only is the food and service amazing, but the restaurant itself is totally enchanting. This is the one can't miss meal in Havana.

The best restaurant over 3 weeks in Cuba but don't go on a saturday evening, they run out of things as they close sunday to tuesday. They also don't seem to organise their bookings with most people arriving when we did so a long delay.

It is a beautiful restaurant with an amazing menu. There were 6 of us for dinner - each had a different dish, and all agreed the food was wonderful; beautiful presentation. Great appatisers, extensive wine list, and wonderful deserts. And a devine basket of breads with diverse breads and toppings. The staff was fully bilingual and very helpful.. Lillian's daughter...

Is this what it’s like dining in Paradise? Enter through the lush garden, enjoy opulent service and have a meal that I bet will be one of your favourite memories from Havana.

Firstable I have to say that food here is fantastic but service is not so great. After waiting 1 hour and half for the food, they brought me the plate with a different presentation that I was waiting for. When I asked why it was like that, they said that it was always presented like that, when in fact, it... More
